    If the Writer's Strike ends in a time period where there'd be enough time to film more episodes before the end of the season, we'll get more episodes. Since the chance of that happening is like an iceberg's chance in Hell, we'd just have to wait for season 3 in September if the strike doesn't last that long.

    Greedy S.O.B's why don't those producers just give the writers more money?! They deserve it! Without them there wouldn't be a show! They've already lost a billion dollars all together on this strike! Time to share and share alike dammit! :cmad:

    I'm with you, I wish they'd let the writers strike end already. This greed isn't doing any one any good, boo!!!

    Meh, I'm on the fence, the producers are greedy, but the writers are mostly pumping out crap.

    That is unless they combine it with Volume 3, so you would have Vol 2 and 3 in the same set.

    which could happen as well.. but more then likely they wont, due to A) more money and B) releasing the previous season before the new season is always a good way to boost sales

    what they did in england was release series one in 2 halves. genesis to homecoming then on to the finale to get more money. The first half came out early so the impatient could buy it and the second half came out the day of the full series set. The full series set would be £10 cheaper than both halves so i see them using the separation strategy again especially now they have reason for it.

    I dont know. It did end the Justice League movie, so the strike hasn't been all bad.

    But yeah, I want Heroes back. I hate the idea of waiting until September for any more episodes. Thats like 8 months away.

    Initially I wanted a JL flick, but their casting sucked so it may be for the best.

    Anywayz, back on subject, I really miss heroes, no other show comes close to keeping my attention and absorbing me like them!

    Wait... what? Do you mean to tell me that the strike took place before they finished Season 2 for Heroes?! Nooo! How are they going to work that in their plot? The big finale was supposedly in June 2008. What are they going to do if there's no new episodes by that time??

    I'm on the opposite side of this opinion... have you seen the trash that comes through your TV?

    As far as heroes is concerned... after that 2nd season, do you really think they deserve a raise? Honestly, the only raise I would give them, is the average wage raise in order to offset inflation. But I wouldn't give them mo real money. The heroes writers, at least for season 2, have actually earned a wage cut.

    Maybe the producers should protest... they are infact paying these guys to pump out badass scripts... which happens only maybe 3 or 4 times a year, in the entire industry. The should go picket the writers, and tell them they want quality writers( or at least more of them).


    I hate the whole situation,,, but now the writers have pretty much lost my support. Why? Becuae is the process of trying to screw their bosses, they've screwed me.

    Maybe their writing sucked because they had no incentive to write a good show. If the writers wrote an amazing show/series, which became ultra popular, it isn't like they were going to see any return when dvd sales and internet downloads went through the roof.

    Before you completely trash the writers, you should know more about television script writers:
    1. The writers may earn a lot of money just from one movie, but they actually earn less than the director, producers, and sometimes the actors (though I don't think that justifies their protest)
    2. Writers can only write so much dialogue into a script; it's not like Theatre in which there is a lot of dialogue.
    3. Once the writer writes the script in their own vision, the director interprets the script into the film/show in their seperate vision which is censored some more by the producers.
    4. Unlike theatre, the director can change the writer's script all they want in order to fit it within their own vision for the show.
    5. The only way we, the audience, could actually see on screen what the writer had intended would be if the writer was also the director or producer of their own script (which is what some do)

    How do I know all this? Because a screen writer (who is not involved in the current strike) gave a workshop to a theatre class, which I attended.
    Now, I am not agreeing or disagreeing with this current strike because I haven't a clue of what they are all protesting for besides money (there's usually a secondary purpose with strikes); I just figure you should know these facts and decipher them whatever way you wish afterwards.

    who cares?


    who cares about theatre... I'm saying that 70% of the tripe that makes it to TV, is not worth the salary the writer earned for delivering such nonsense

    This is different from other forms of entertainment how?

    HELLO, directors in theatre have this perogative too



    I really don't care anymore. It's like if the police strike for a legit reason, nobody really cares,,, until their houses start getting robbed.

    What I'm saying... is unions should never strike for long term. Hurting your producers in the wallet is fair... but hurting your audience, your market is a serious no no, they are not the ones at fault, and one should not be making them pay the price. Again, I think these writers get paid too much for the crap that is released on TV (that's a generalization).

    well, if there was no incentive to make season 2 good, because of all this strike business... then how was there any incentive whatsoever to write a good Season 1? (Were they not operating on the same, or similar contract to that of season 2?)

    I understand what the writers are after... their fair share of profits from the work they have provided... but 1) I think that most of that work is meh, and 2) I feel that most of that work is highly overvalued for the product that is the rsult
